  • Health Management Contract Guidelines for Clients and Contractors

    Contains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 10/19/2016

    This webinar is intended to inform professionals who either manage health contracts or who have responsibilities in supporting contracts of this nature (Procurement, HSE professionals, etc.) that in the workplace, an effective health management system requires active and positive collaboration bewteen operators and contractors.

    This webinar has been organized by the SPE HSSE-SR Health Subcommittee in collaboration with IOGP (International Oil and Gas Producers Association) /IPIECA (the global oil and gas association for environmental and social issues). The IOGP/IPIECA Health Committee has been in existence since 2003 and functions as a forum where their members can identify, debate and share best health practices. This committee develops guidance and recommendations on occupational, environmental and public health issues that are relevant to oil and gas industry organizations and the communities where they operate.

    This webinar is intended to inform professionals who either manage health contracts or who have responsibilities in supporting contracts of this nature (Procurement, HSE professionals, etc.) that in the workplace, an effective health management system requires active and positive collaboration bewteen operators and contractors. Without such as system then there is the potential for:

    • Loss of life
    • Health-related accidents
    • Injuries and illness
    • Disruptions in operations

    In 2015, to assist the operator and contractor relationship and to avoid potential confusion regarding responsibilities and expectations of both parties, the IOGP/IPIECA health committee published a guideline document entitled “Health Management Contract Guidelines for Clients and Contractors". The document provides guidance on:

    • health management system elements, requirements and deliverables;
    • establishing roles and responsibilities between contractor(s) and client/operator;
    • health aspects related to the pre-qualification, bidding and execution phase; and
    • promoting transparency and effective communication on health management in contracts.

    This webinar will involve key speakers from a leading service contractor, Eugene Toukam, Schlumberger VP HSE for Europe and Africa and a major healthcare company, Simon Hawthorne, VP Legal, and UnitedHealthcare Global Medical, providing examples of real problems that can occur in the absence of such a strategic contract management plan. Finally, Dr. Alex Barbey, International Health Coordinator, Schlumberger Limited, who chaired the IOGP/IPIECA health taskforce which produced the guideline will explain how utilization of the guidelines can avoid the issues described and prevent a negative impact due to deficiencies in contract management.

    Sustainable safety performance is the key to business success in a changing business environment. In order to address a lack of well-defined safety standards, especially in the crude business, Shell Trading (STUSCO) launched its Road Transport (RT) Safety program to drive a culture change in the hauler's organization and set minimum Road Transport HSSE standards as part of our working partnership.

    The primary key to success is to address driver behavioral elements and organizational culture to emphasize that safety is not just a slogan, but a core value that is delivered from the top down. The CEO and Director levels of our hauler's organization must own the safety program and demonstrate visible and tangible HSSE leadership to drive the change in safety culture and HSSE performance. Individual road transport KPIs are developed and agreed upon with haulers to ensure performance is monitored and kept on track.

    Shell Trading's RT HSSE program sets minimum standards for equipment and driver training that are above industry standards or Federal US DOT requirements. These include items like a robust In-Vehicle Monitoring System (IVMS), roll stability control, defensive driver and fatigue awareness training. Compliance with our standards are checked via a system of hauler audits and field assurance by Shell staff and a selected group of contractors.

  • An Overview of Multistage Completion Systems for Hydraulic Fracturing

    Contains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 11/03/2016

    Shales and other low-permeability formations require multistage completions, hydraulic fracturing, and horizontal wells to produce at economic rates. This webinar focuses on the multistage completion systems that are used in these applications, including plug-and-perf, ball-activated systems (frac sleeves), and coiled tubing-activated systems (annular fracturing). Participants will learn the different types of wellbore completion options and how they compare in different applications. Also, the challenges and options of refracturing existing wells will be discussed.

    Contains 2 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 10/26/2016

    The current state of the drilling industry tends to focus on technology and techniques that reduce the cost of well construction. One approach is to use drilling automation to help improve ROP, and perhaps more importantly, to mitigate drilling dysfunctions and human errors than can lead to large, unplanned expenses. SPE’s Drilling Systems Automation Technical Section (DSATS) created an international university competition to encourage the development of new drilling algorithms and to get more young people involved in drilling.

    The current state of the drilling industry tends to focus on technology and techniques that reduce the cost of well construction.

SPE's Drilling Systems Automation Technical Section (DSATS) created an international university competition to encourage the development of new drilling algorithms and to get more young people involved in drilling. The students must design, build and operate a small (6 ft / 2 m) drilling rig with fully automated sensors and controls. They drill a specially created, multi-layered rock sample as fast and as straight as possible, with only two buttons: start and stop. The schools must offer a multidisciplinary team that will learn things that are not in today's textbooks. The winning team receives travel expenses to present their results at the next Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition. This webinar describes the contest, what skill sets are necessary to successfully compete and what types of innovative features are likely to emerge from this exciting competition.
